A Warm Welcome to the Middle Years!
At Ilminster Intermediate we are very clear about the function and importance of an intermediate school, or middle years education.
It is to provide transition education between primary and secondary; between childhood and adolescence; and between family and a widening social group. By the time children reach the intermediate stage they are ready, and indeed eager, for wider curriculum, sporting, emotional, social and cultural experiences.
An effective intermediate school education is a launching pad for all areas of life. Not just academics, but an all-round development in all areas.
At Ilminster Intermediate, our aim is to develop young people who grow in confidence as they develop to their full potential, with their individuality found, encouraged and celebrated! Our outstanding team of teachers are specialists in working with students in their early adolescence. They bring passion, energy and expertise to their classrooms and have relationships with our students that are warm, supportive and based on mutual respect.
Our Board are constantly focussed on ensuring that what we do is good for all of our students.
Our school wide universal values of being inclusive, safe, positive, respectful and responsible are infused through all that we do. Our students are happy and engaged. They embrace opportunity and challenge, and in doing so develop strong positive relationships regardless of which primary school they went to or which suburb they live in. We are very proud of our young people and the rich and vibrant community they create.
